Each year, millions of pounds of unwanted textiles end up in landfills. In fact, the average American generates 81 pounds of textile waste each year, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
“Caring for your clothes is one of the best ways to reduce your fashion footprint – and with LG’s top-rated washers and dryers, extending the life of your wardrobe has never been easier,” added Gail Conroy, senior director of marketing at LG Electronics USA.
LG launched its Second Life campaign earlier this spring, kicking off with a West Coast clothing drive that collected more than 5,000 pounds of unwanted textiles. All collected items passed through LG’s wash center in Los Angeles where they were sorted, thoroughly cleaned and refreshed.
LG’s East Coast Second Life Tour kicks on Oct. 16 in New York City and visits three more cities along its way. Each tour stop will span two days and culminates in Tenn. – home to LG’s state-of-the-art washing machine factory – with a special tailgate at Nissan Stadium before the Tennessee Titans game against the New Orleans Saints. As the official home appliance and television partner of the Titans, LG Second Life is one of several community events planned in Middle Tenn.
